Former Investment Banker, Christine Marchuska

At the height of the recession, Studio 360 interviewed scores of people transitioning from one career to another.  Many used the opportunity to follow their dreams.  Two former financial industry workers took the uninvited opportunity to reinvent themselves. Christine Marchuska, lived a real-life Up In The Air moment, getting pink-slipped in the conference room at her investment banking firm and immediately ushered off the premises.  Out but definitely now down, Marchuska went on to launch a thriving eco-friendly clothing line.  And Michael Terry, armed with a University of Pennsylvania MBA, became a full time comedian after years of work at Morgan Stanley.  Listen to more of their story here.
